Biomedical Engineering: bachelor’s degree program at UAS Technikum Wien

The Biomedical Engineering bachelor’s degree program trains students to be experts in biomedical engineering. The program teaches technical know-how and medical knowledge. The interaction of these two fields has become an important part of modern medicine

Accordingly, the contents of the degree program are concentrated in the fields of medicine and natural science/technology. Students are provided with a fundamental understanding of physical-chemical relationships, along with the ability to describe these with mathematical functions. General and organic chemistry are also part of the curriculum. These course contents enable the students to function as key partners for physicians and biologists.

Four emphases for specialization:

In addition to the broad basic knowledge students learn, starting in the fourth semester of the program they can choose from one of the following four emphases based on their interests and future career plans:

  • Medical Imaging and Data Engineering: medical image processing, healthcare information systems, telemedicine
  • Medical & Hospital Engineering: Development of medical devices and their use in hospital
  • Rehabilitation Engineering: Rehabilitation technology and prosthetics, measurement technology and analysis
  • Cell- & Tissue Engineering: Collaboration in medical or biotechnical laboratories, including in the highly topical scientific fields of artificial tissue development

Students learn:

  • The most important medical technology methods in laboratories and hospitals
  • How to select and apply typical diagnosis and therapeutic procedures, taking into account the specific physical and technological aspects
  • To apply technical methods to biological fields (e.g. sensor technology, biomechanics, imaging) and to the function of surgical equipment and respiratory anesthesia equipment
  • To apply the specialized fundamentals of data processing, taking into account the special aspects of medicine
  • To apply the specialized fundamentals of data processing, taking into account the special aspects of medicine
  • To develop treatment possibilities in cases of malpositioning/joint instability/muscular insufficiencies in the lower extremities
  • To identify the fundamental principles of tissue engineering to obtain, grow, and characterize cells in vitro or in vivo as well as in combination with biomaterials
  • To use cell and tissue cultures for biological testing procedures

Internationalization of studies

Starting in 2022/23, internationalization will play an essential role for students at UAS Technikum Wien and will become a fixed component of every curriculum. The possibilities are diverse and adapted to the different framework conditions of the students: from excursions lasting several days to semesters abroad, from acting as an international buddy for others to writing the Bachelor thesis in English. All Bachelor students complete at least 5 ECTS from a wide range of measures.
